Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day. It is proven that people who eat breakfast maintain a healthy weight and regular fuel sources for your body to function optimally. As not everyone is the best morning person, I find this bircher muesli recipe the perfect option.
It is made in minutes and is a simple answer to a delicious breakfast as the oats soak up all the goodness the night before to fill you up come morning time with minimal effort and maximum reward.
– 110g oats
– 2 tbsp milled linseed
– 1 tbsp hemp or chia seeds
– 1 tbsp flaked almonds
– 1 tbsp raisins/dried cranberries/apricot
– 1 tsp ground cinnamon
– Zest of 1/2 small orange
– 1/2 juice of a fresh small orange
– 150ml milk (use whatever variety you like natural/nut/rice/oat/soya)
– 50ml water
1. Place all the dry ingredients in a bowl or Kilner jar.
2. Add the orange juice, milk and water.
3. Stir well together and store in the fridge overnight (if you think the mix looks a little dry or you like a more gooey texture just add more liquid).
4. Come morning, stir again to ensure well combined and serve with orangebsegments and a dollop of natural or Greek yoghurt.
